Last Known Activity
Army Master Sgt. Charles J. Brown, Jr., 20, of Ozone Park, New York, will be buried Sept. 26 in Sarasota, Florida. His remain were identified and accounted for on 29 June 2016. In early November 1950, Brown was a member of Company L, 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, when the Chinese People’s Volunteer Forces (CPVF) attacked the regiment and forced the unit to withdraw to the village of Ipsok, approximately five miles south of Unsan. The survivors attempted to set up a defensive perimeter, but many soldiers became surrounded and attempted to escape and evade the enemy, but the majority were captured and marched to POW camps.
